Thus, I decided to design and bake my own Mickey Mouse Cheesecakes and for anyone who love cheesecakes, I am sharing this recipe with you <3

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 eggs, lightly beaten, room temperature

Simple Secrets to Successful and Yummy Cheesecakes!
- The cream cheese should be at room temperature and slightly soft before you begin mixing, or you will end up with lumps in your cheesecake.
- DO NOT overbeat your cheesecake batter.
- Cheesecake MUST not be jiggy/watery after being baked, they will be firm once they have cooled and chilled for several hours.
- Chilling the cheesecake is absolutely crucial. This is your secret to a perfectly smooth, dense and creamy texture!
Hope you enjoyed! <3
